    Honestly I'd up the cheese & put some in the sauce too, probably add another 40 cals a portion but worth it. Was nice though x

    Recipe was originally skimmed but I don't do skimmed milk I think maybe do some meat & use it as an accompaniment as it's not really a mans meal although hubby enjoyed it (he'll be in the fridge eating raw chicken by 9 )

    Yeah please do!

    Btw I reckon in the frittata you could leave the cream out making it lower cal & fat, really don't think it added anything to it
